Use a large blue sheet as the pond. Have circle time in the pond. Use lily pad seat markers for each of the children to sit on.
Other ideas for the pond sheet
- Make stepping stones to help you walk across the pond without getting wet.
- Turn a large box into a boat and float it on the pond. Add some oars and a fishing rod.
- Toss some fish in the pond and catch them with a magnet on a fishing pole.
- Scoop up some plastic frogs in a net.
